55 - Cooped Up


It's a sunny day, and I am cooped up here, indoors, looking out the window at the blue sky and palm trees. The air conditioner blows cold against my skin and I huddle in my business suit, wondering why we bother holding conferences in such lovely, sunny places if we never get to go outside.











About Friday 55: Write a story in 55 words, then tell the G-Man!

Yeah? What's up with that? Like having a kid's classroom set up in the back of a candy store! :)

At the conference I just attended, they moved the entire track from one of the larger panels to a space outside. I got a sunburn.

... just gather them up and head outdoors. Someone has to role play leader.
